Fallout 76 Players May Finally Get Their Damn Collector's Bags

After a seven-month wait underscored by security issues and cheap nylon, Fallout 76 players may be able to get the collector’s edition bags they were promised.

Gather round, children, and let me tell you the saga of the collector’s edition Fallout 76 bags.

The fancy-pants $300 Power Armour edition of Fallout 76 was supposed to come with a canvas bag, but players got nylon bags instead. They were not happy, and our own Luke Plunkett referred to the bags as “nylon trash”.

Bethesda promised replacement bags, but we haven’t heard much about when they’ll arrive until now. To make matters worse, customer support for people who wanted these bags accidentally leaked their names, phone numbers and addresses.

If I were to ever buy what amounts to a $300 bag, I would hope that it 1) is made of literally anything other than nylon and 2) does not dox me.

But the Bag Saga may finally be coming to a close. On Thursday, Bethesda tweeted that they’ll be sending out replacement bags starting next week.

I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that next week is also E3, where Bethesda will be having a press conference and will want to foster goodwill from their fans. I just hope that whatever the resolution is, it will not require a fifth article about these freaking bags.

    This last 12 months has been possibly the worst year Bethesda has *ever* had in terms of PR and game quality in general. I wonder how they're going to try to recapture the faith...

    Oooooh Doom Eternal.

    Goddamn it I want that game...

    Yeah timing is pretty convenient, will be glad to get the bag finally, they had better hope the bags are good quality or there will be another shitstorm.

      To be fair, they did say it'd be six months back in December/January when the window for filing the ticket was open. If they planned it to line up with E3 then they planned it hella far in advance, and I don't buy that really.

    I had totally forgotten about that. Hopefully it's decent when it arrives.
